I want to upgrade my old ZEN Vision:M to something with a good audio quality, a real equalizator and microSD slot.
I've recived a 6G iPod Nano (the one with touch screen controls) and with the IEM that i have (a pair of Bose In-Ear, the model before the IE2) isn't working well: too much bass for me, and the lack of a real eq isn't a good thing.
In addiction, i have a lot of FLACs in my library, and hear them in MP3 isnt' a good idea!
I've found two players that suits me:
- ZEN X-Fi 3
- SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip
I'm a big fan of Creative, and the presence of all three point above plus the X-Fi technology, makes the X-Fi 3 the perfect companion for me, but I don't know if there's a good EQ on it.
The Sansa instead can run RockBox, but I'm not sure about the audio quality.
In Italy (yes, I'm Italian so sorry for my bad english!), on the official Creative site i can buy the X-Fi 3 + a free "style pack" for 80€, with free shipping.
What do you reccomend? Suggest more products if you know!
I listen mainly to Progressive Metal, Progressive Rock, Hard Rock, Jazz, Fusion and a bit of Rap'n'Roll.
